Arauco: A NovelArauco: A Novel by John Caviglia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Masterfully written and totally engrossing, I found myself unable to put this book down. Even though it is a long novel I wanted it to go on longer as the world it conjures up is detailed and immersive. I felt myself transported back to those times in history and to that place in the long thin land now called Chile. Excellent characterisations and clearly exhaustive historical research combine with masterful storytelling to conjure a compelling vision of this clash of cultures that has been going on for hundreds of years. Five Stars!
